August 24, 2010

I wish that every day
was my BIRTHDAY!!

I do not even know where to start!
After a long sleep-in this morning,
and a delicious antibiotic pill (for the 'ergies')
along with my breakfast (not in bed, unfortunately!),
the tall guy said 'Let's go for a ride!'.
Well I thought we were going to the park, but no.
Look at where we went:

Yes, that is me in the water.
It is not a alligator!

We went to the lake.
There weren't even a lot of people there,
SO, I got to get off of my string

and go out in the actual part
where my feet didn't touch the bottom!!

There were even some extra puppies there for me to play with:

It was two separate dogs, even though they look the same.

It was so much fun. I got to run
and play with the sticks and everything!

Me and a stick.
I am the one smiling.

This next picture is NOT what you think it is.
This is a pine comb.
I guess it is what the trees use to comb their leaves.

It was so much fun.
I would like to go play in the lake every day!
But boy was I tired on the way home!

And then later that afternoon,
after I awoke refreshed,

I was right.
That stuff that came in the mail was for me.

Let's look shall we?

I hit the jackpot.
I feel like I was on Wheel Of Fortune
and called the letter 'E'!

Can you guess who this was from?
Yep, one of the bestest puppies in the world:
Remington (and Beth and sometimes Mike!)
They are so cool.
There was even a puzzle on the back of the card.
I am going to keep it just in case
I need something to do if I ever need to take a trip
on a plane!

What do you mean there's more???

Maybe I need some scissors?

And it's my favorite kind.
The kind made out of .. uh.... paper!

What, you mean it's more than paper???

Are you kidding me?
This is like so amazing!!
It's the most amazing thing I've ever seen.
It's like unbelievable.
It's like..
what is it?

it's a bomible snowmans!!
I have never had no snowmans before!!

And look,
I didn't even rip his head off yet!!

Hey, snowman.
Don't steal my cookie!!

Oh yes.
All the stuff in the box
(and there was a lot of stuff)
was from Augie and Ti!!
They are two of the funniest dogs I know.
And I love looking at all the things they do on their blog!

(I think their mom helps!!)

So thank you to all my friends and to everyone
who came by to visit yesterday.
I had over 42 million comments.
Well, I had a lot of comments
and I got to meet a lot of new people!

So thank you, thank you, and thank YOU!

Now, what can we do for my birthday tomorrow?


  1. Oh doesn't The TG know - the sekhond birthday celebration is akhutally ONE WEEK long!

    Oh those some of those English Summer Spaniels woo swam with?


  2. Jack, I'm glad you had a great birthday! Swimming without your string?? Great. That's what I want for my birthday!
    I hope you saw your card on my blog..

  3. Jack, you sure did have a great birthday. You are such a cutie.

    MAN you made quite a haul there. You lucky dude!! and a swim in the lake, life just doesnt get much better than that huh?? Glad that you enjoyed your special day!!


  5. Jack - A word of advice to a mere youngster. When you get to a certain age every day is a birthday.

  6. Good times.

    Favorite line: "Me and a stick. I'm the one smiling."


  7. Jack,

    What a grreat way to spend your barkday and you gots amazing pressies too. :) Lucky pup!

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae

  8. Woof! Woof! i FUN FUN FUN to have a birthday. Glad you had a wonderful day. Love your snowman stuffie. FYI: my allergies got worst from swimming on the lake so make sure you dried off immediately especially your ears. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  9. Oh my dogs Jack your birthday was absolutely the best day I've ever read about. I, Madi, would like to make a reservation to celebrate my next birthday at your house. Please mark your calendar 'THE DIVA' arrives March 11, 2011.
    However,instead of a day at the lake...please make arrangements for me to have a day at the spa. Thank you, Madi

    A day at the lake now that has to be the #1 top thing for all Labs to do on their b-day.
    Great presents from great friends too. That snowman looks very interesting.
    Happy Day after your b-day...take lots of naps.
    Madi and Mom

  10. Happy Belated Birthday Jack! Isn't being 2 the best!! What a great day you had. I don't get to party until Sat :(


  11. Looks like you had an awesome birthday Jack! You lucky dog!!

    Fred and Haylie

  12. That looked like a great Birthday day! Your presents looked like so much fun :) I hope you have fun playing with them!

  13. Sounds like you got the great day you deserved, my friend! I am happy you liked your present....Enjoy!

  14. I think you had a PERFECT birthday Jack!

  15. PeeS I laughed at the Cheerios comment... if I can't come up with some "bracken," I'll let you know. I think Cheerios might be a great substitute!

  16. Hey, it almost looks like you got to play with Cabana's friend Maggie! Swimming on your birthday--not much can beat that. Except maybe the snowman toy. We need one of those!! Only thing missing from your birthday is CAKE. Were you robbed or is that coming in another post?!

  17. Wow, you had quite the day! Now what will the Tall Guy do for an encore when you turn three? Great pressies, and so much fun at the lake. Hope there was some cake too.

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  18. Hrmph - we are never allowed to swim without our string - even on our birthday. We are going to complain to the Siberian Husky Union - SHU.

  19. Yeaoooooo Jack! What a fantastic day at the lake, and lots of surprises! Never seen a snowman before, but looks like my kind of player :)
    You have such great furpals! Have a super time with all the loot :)

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
    Sierra Rose

  20. Man what a fun birthday! swimming with no string! special day!
    Those are great gifts! Love the snowman!

  21. WOW! You sure had a great birthday Jack! I really enjoyed reading about it!

  22. Wow, Jack. Tell the TG he's making me look bad. Caspian and Cocoa turned 1 in March and they did not have the excellent day you had. I guess I better start making plans for when my Labradorables turn two.

  23. Jack -
    Looks like you had the PERFECT birthday celebration. Swimming - without the string. Brilliant! (Just remember to flush those ears out and dry well - says your friend, "Abbey - the ConeHead")

  24. Wow you sure got a lots of pressies for your birthday Jack! Looks like fun! ~Pompei

  25. Dude, what a fantastic birfday you had. See, dat why you should celebrate it allllllll month long...dat way you don't gets too tireded out. And I would recommend da TG takes yu swimming everday furs da whole month....without your string....I mean, if I was a swin=mming dog, but I'm NOT


  26. Woo-hoo, looks like you had a great birthday!! (Although, I'm thinking there was no cake-tsk!) Glad you liked your gifts, both edible and non-edible (ha ha, that was a joke! Everything is edible when you're a retriever....)!

  27. Madi's towel...yes she does stay right there.
    Never sits on any other part of the bed. She is the ultimate Princess and the pea....the more cushion under her the better. You wouldn't think that towel makes that much difference but it does.
    She and her habits are a hoot.
    Madi's Mom

  28. You really hit the JACKpot in every sense of the word. As for tomorrow's celebration, I have an idea: You're a DOG now, therefore I can't see how a little kitty litter cake can intimidate you. We're having one of those tomorrow for your birthday then. It's settled. (evil BOL)

  29. Happy Birthday Jack!!!!! You are such a adorable Birthday Boy!!!!!!!!!! Wow it looks like you had a awesome b-day and a fantastic time swimming!!!!!!! LOOK at those toys, WOW!!!!! I'm sure you are going to have a blast playing with those and that bomible snowman is so cool, I want one of those two!!!! We are wishing you a fantastic Birthday week!!!!! Big Hugs, Sharky, ET, Duchess and Lauren

  30. Jack it looks like you had a Awesome Birthday! You look so happy with your stick hanging out of your mouth. Glad you had a great day!
    Your Friends
    Geisha,Grover,Lily,Bailey,and Wrinkles

  31. Ohhh....happy birthday Jack!! It looks like the TG showed you a really good time, and we're happy you received nice gifts too. Happy day buddy :)

  32. Jack!
    Swimming without the string sure is a sign that you are now a big boy!
    I hope you can do it often!
    Kisses and hugs

  33. Sorry we missed your special day! (we just got back from lake)...
    Happy Birthday Jack!
